Today Apple’s Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad 2. It’s thinner, faster and has a longer battery life than the original iPad. It’s one of the first tablets to offer a dual-core processor which is why it is twice as faster. It is also slimmed down from 13.4mm to 8.8mm which is slimmer than the iPhone 4. Not quite paper thin, but we’re moving in the right direction. The iPad 2 has two cameras so that you can FaceTime with others and offers an HD display. It also comes with a new screen protector that doubles as an iPad stand called the Smart Cover. Built in magnets enable the Smart Cover to fit perfectly on the front of the device and protect it while its not in use. Speaking of use, the iPad 2 offers a 10 hour battery for extended usage. Priced at $499 the iPad 2 will be available on March 11th and comes in black or white.
